tell you that the senate majority leader harry reid came out and talked to reporters while president obama was speaking and he announced to reporters that there probably will have to be some changes made to this deal. he actually said -- this is the democratic leader in the senate -- i am not a big fan of what has been announced. it was very clear in talking to many, many democratic senators going into the meeting. not just liberals but also moderate democrats. very interesting there. moderate democrats who said they have problems with this on a whole host of issues. but the fact that harry reid is saying they're not going forward until they talk to the white house and talk to republicans about making some changes shows that this is -- it's not just sound and fury if you will, that there are real issues here when it comes to getting the votes. >> dana, you've put a light on something thaths back to t.a.r.p., goes back to the stimulus bill and goes back to everything that's ever been discussed, the president discussing it like it's a fait accompli with that deal. this still has to go

harry reid but too many items on the agenda in the lame duck session and i want to play what you said and how one of the first responders, who now has cancer, reacted. let's watch. >> it is impossible to do all of the things the majority leader laid out. without doing frankly, without disrespecting the institution. and, without disrespecting one of the two holiest of holidays for christians. >>... you say you won't find a single new york city firefighter who considers it a sign of disrespect to work in the new york city fire house on christmas eve or christmas day. >> chris: senator, everyone, everyone praises the first responders as heros and you say you are skeptical about the bill. why not find a way to give these heros peace of mind when it comes to health care. >> first of all, they should have peace of mind when it comes to health care, the question is what and how and when you try to do it as you said, in your introduction, in a hurry, the lame duck session without a hearing, without understanding what the ramifications are, and whether we can amend the bill, you are doing it i

gangster giveaway. i'll talk to him and katrina vanden huevel of the nation coming up. >>> harry reid threw a knockout punch today at some republicans who were whining about having to work around the holidays. this is why reid won in the state of nevada. i mean when it gets tough he knows how to fight. wait till you see the tape you're going to love it. >>> and the tea party indoctrination, well that is now in session. michele bachmann's the teacher and she's got a class full of extremist clowns to help educate the new members of congress. >>> and this just in, moments ago, don't ask, don't tell passed the house. you won't believe what some republicans on the floor were saying about gay americans. that's coming up. >>> but this is the story that has me fired up tonight. president obama is one step closer to having his $858 billion tax compromise with the republicans become the law of the land, and right now nancy pelosi is the only person in the world that can stop it. now earlier today the senate voted overwhelmingly to pass this package by a vote of 81-19. remember that number, 81. only 1
